For Christmas my mum got some special bubbly stuff so last night she had a special bath. I heard her pour the water and go "mmmmm" as she sniffed the bubbles and she put her pyjamas on the radiator to be toasty when she got out and she dimmed the lights and she put on her plinky plonky music and in she slid. All relaxy.
Which reminded me. I wasn't relaxy. My tummy was empty. I called her. She ignored me. I called again, louder.
"Seriously?" she called back.
"I am a poor starving cat," I gave it my most piteous mews.
"When I checked there were chunks in your dish and biscuits in your biscuit bowl" she said. She really did think she had thought of everything.
This carried on a while. I did go in and peer at her in the bubbles but I didn't want to get too close for fear of getting wet.
I thought I might actually lose this one but fate intervened on my behalf. Mum suddenly went, "NO!" And then she leapt out of the bath, grabbed her gown and ran outside. She was banging on the door of upstairs for water was leaking through the bathroom ceiling and giving her a cold shower on top of her warm bath.
I heard voices and she came back in and waited. Then she went back out as the water kept pouring and when she came back she had the guy from upstairs with her - maybe he didn't believe her but he could see the water for himself. He claimed to have no idea where the water was coming from but it did stop after that.
But my mum was grumpy and not relaxy at all so bathtime was over and kitty supper time was here. Every cloud and all that!!
Mum is back at work today which is good as we have had an earlier breakfast. We will miss having her around on snack duty though.

Ah man Toby, that does not sound like a relaxing bath for your poor mom. I hope they got the water bit taken care of. That sounds pretty horrible. :( I'll purr for her that she can have a relaxing bath soon.
Your poor momma!
Having a bath and a shower at the same time sounds like fun. I hope your mum has enough bubble stuff to have another bath.
Happy new year. Can you please say G'day to Josie and your mum for me.
Methinks you paid your neighbor off.
